Job Description


Director of Research – UHN TRI

The Toronto Rehabilitation Institute (TRI) has been a leader in rehabilitation research since its’ inception in 1998.   In 2011, TRI integrated with University Health Network, Canada’s largest research hospital. Today, TRI is revolutionizing rehab and building healthier communities in Ontario and throughout Canada.   The dedicated researchers at TRI are developing new and more effective treatments, changing policies and practices, and creating devices and technologies to help people live as fully and independently as possible.

As one of Canada’s leading and most productive research programs in the field of rehabilitative science, TRI’s researchers are working to prevent illness and injury, improve the lives of those living with the effects of disability and age-related health conditions and make a meaningful impact on the future of clinical care and public policy.  Given the Institute’s mandate and its world class reputation, infrastructure, and resources, the research that will be carried out under the leadership of the new Institute Director will have a significant impact in addressing the challenges of a growing and aging Canadian population, as well as an increasing demand for rehabilitation services.  

Reporting to the EVP, Science and Research at UHN, and working in partnership with the clinical leadership team at TRI, the Director of Research is a strategic thinker and a visionary leader in one or more areas of research undertaken by his/her Institute.  With millions in external funding, close links to private industry through commercialization and knowledge translation, a rich multi-disciplinary education program, and one of the world’s most technologically advanced rehabilitation research environments (iDAPT) to oversee, the next Institute Director will need to be an internationally recognized scientist with the reputation and influence to build on the Institute’s existing achievements.  He/she will need to establish his/her strategic vision with TRI’s many donors and partners while demonstrating a proven track record in leading a globally recognized research program in rehabilitation. 

He/she is responsible for developing research priorities and directions for the Institute congruent with the UHN vision and strategic directions and works closely with other senior leaders to translate these plans into reality. The Director also has a wider role in UHN Research through participation in the Research Council Executive (RCE) (Institute Directors, Hospital COOs, and VP Research).   To be successful, he/she will possess a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree along with experience and credibility in a significant leadership role in a research environment. A visionary leader, the new Director will have a demonstrated ability to promote research excellence, raising profile at a global level.   To explore this further, please contact Penny Mirams or Nancy Lismer at +1 416-366-1990, submit your resume in confidence to nancy.lismer@odgersberndtson.com or apply online at www.odgersberndtson.com/en/careers/14221.
